  • Abílio Barreto Museum brings together collection that reveals in details the past of BH. Created by JK when he was Mayor of the capital, space accumulates more than 70000 items that reveal in detail of the capital since the beginning of the works for its construction. The visit with a tour guide is more rich in detail for those who want to really get to know the details. A very interesting visit, we love!
